<4.15> <3.35> <1.70>

werder bremen and mochengladbach have something in common this season - both sides yet to register their first wins. i fancy werder to win this one though. their lack of fluency in the first game is understandable, while a 2-2 draw with a schalke side strengthened over the summer is a good result. in further good news, influential playmaker diego is back for them, and his presence alone should guarantee victory for werder.

Eddy's prediction: $5 on werder bremen @ 1.70 = $8.50


<2.25> <3.20> <2.70>

blackburn look kinda shitty this season. i predicted that they will hover around the relegation zone, and if so, these are the sort of matches they will lose. west ham, i feel, can ride on dean ashton this season, and with quality service from the wings in the likes of etherington/mccartney and faubert/behrami, west ham are gonna win.

Eddy's prediction: $5 on west ham @ 2.25 = $11.25

Blackburn haven't been by any means bad. They may have lost Bentley, but still have a decent team. They do miss Bentley's creativity and will look to Gamst Pedersen to provide some spark to their attack. West Ham will be without Mark Noble, and their usual host of mass injuries. They slumped to a 3-0 defeat away to Man City and barely scraped past Macclesfield Town in the Carling Cup (don't let the 4-1 trick you, it was just 3 goals in extra time). Both teams are in a bad patch and I don't think there will be a clear winner tonight. If you can, take Blackburn at a handicap of +0.5 or 0.25.

Roland's prediction: $5 on Draw @ 3.20 = $16

<2.42> <3.20> <2.48>

Don't be fooled by Hull being in 4th place. They beat Fulham at home with the promoted-club-first-game-frenzy, then drew at Ewood Park against a Bentley-less Blackburn. Their "good form" will end soon, and I think Wigan at 2.48 to win is good value, as they were brilliant against Chelsea and deserved a draw at Stamford Bridge. Kirkland should be back so I'm backing Wigan.

Roland's prediction: $5 on Wigan @ 2.48 = $12.40

Got to agree with roland. wigan haven't played badly at all in the first two matches. west ham looked like they were gonna collpase despite taking a 2-goal lead. and amr zaki is looking quite classy. with heskey they can form a decent partnership, and i think hull's honeymoon period will have to be over for the time being. wigan desperately need these points, and i think they will get it.

Eddy's prediction: $5 on wigan @ 2.48 = $12.40


<1.95> <3.20> <3.30>

Everton haven't hit top gear but turned in a decent performance against West Brom last week. Portsmouth aren't by any means shitty, but Kranjcar's absense for 3 months will be sorely missed by them. Defoe has a virus apparently and Pompey look really short on numbers, as I did predict in my pre-season review :D Campbell and Distin look like age has finally caught up on them and I'd expect Yakubu trouble them, but don't expect it to be high scoring so go for under if you can.

Roland's prediction: $5 on Everton @ 1.95 = $9.90

<3.90> <3.52> <1.70>

manchester city fell to a surprising home defeat last time out when the danish side visited them, but they did create chances, which were not taken. this time around, jo is back for manchester city, and what better way to kick off his career at city than to score the goals here? it is an away match, but i think city should have enough to at least force extra time, and so i'm going for a city win here.

Eddy's prediction: $5 on manchester city @ 1.70 = $8.50

<3.65> <3.35> <1.80>

newcastle are going through an injury crisis of sorts, with martins, ameobi, viduka all out. owen and alan smith are both not near full fitness, and as such, attacking options are very limited. however, i still think newcastle can record a win, as freddy eastwood is injured for coventry, and he is a huge miss, considering his goalscoring prowess. kevin keegan has also mentioned the league cup as a possible route for newcastle into the uefa cup, and i think he will want to do well in this competition. win for the magpies.

Eddy's prediction: $5 on newcastle @ 1.80 = $9.00

<3.37> <2.87> <2.07>

young lions is a shitkicker team that do not deserve to win ANY football matches. how they won 2-1 over woodlands last time out is beyond me. woodlands' last win came in june. do you think that's right? hell no. young lions actually won a game or two. shocking. guys if you're reading this, check to see if there are pigs flying outside or see if your mum suddenly turned into jessica alba. SURELY, young lions have to lose this one? i'm gonna tip against them once again, and i think they will lose. besides, although the young lions have home advantage in this one, the fact that the jalan besar pitch is actually level and smooth might mean that their rough-and-tumble style of football will not be as effective.

Eddy's prediction: $5 on woodlands @ 2.07 = $10.35
